30 Tiny Diet Changes That Can Help You Lose Weight

Best Health Logo By Emily DiNuzzo of Best Health | Slide 1 of 30: One simple, but effective, diet change that could help you lose weight is asking two questions. First, ask if you're hungry and then ask what you're in the mood to eat. Susan Bowerman, registered dietitian, and director of Worldwide Nutritional Education and Training at Herbalife, says that people often eat for reasons besides physical hunger. Understanding why you want to eat a certain food could help you determine if eating is the best solution. 'You could be procrastinating, or bored, or stressed. Or maybe you just really need a hug. Distract yourself for five to ten minutes, a buffer time to decide if you're really hungry,' adds Jennipher Walters, a certified personal trainer, co-founder of Fit Bottomed Girls LLC, and author of The Fit Bottomed Girls Anti-Diet. Here are easy ways to lose weight naturally.
